Please mention you found us on: findpetboarding.com
Insured provider of boarding for small mammals in Croydon. Your pet will be cared for with dedication and in accordance with their individual needs. There are no cats, dogs or ferrets so your pet will have calm and safe stay.
We take guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, degus and other small mammals.
Regular photo updates can be provided during your pet's stay if you request this during booking, or you can email me at any time for an update.
Your pet can be accommodated in their own cage, or cages are available for hire for hamsters, gerbils, mice and guinea pigs, if your own cage is not sufficiently portable.
Boarding pets are kept in a temperature monitored room inside the house.
While you will need to provide your pet's dry food or pellets, fresh food and hay can be provided if your pet usually eats it.
Guinea pigs are fed a daily variety of fresh vegetables. This typically includes cucumber, pepper, romaine lettuce, carrot, cress and parsley, and occasionally celery, spinach, mint, broccoli and other foods. Please let us know when booking if there are any foods which don't agree with your guinea pig. Guinea pigs are also provided with unlimited timothy hay.
Handling and exercise can be provided during your pet's stay. I always try to stick to the handling and exercise routine your pet is used to, whether that be daily exercise, or a more hands-off approach.
Because our boarding is in a home environment, nocturnal or crepuscular pets such as hamsters can be given attention and exercise during the times they are most active - evening.
If your pet is unwell or injured during their stay veterinary care will be provided. Any fees will be payable by you on collection of your pet.
Your pet's cage will be spot cleaned (obvious dirty or wet areas cleaned) during their stay, and if necessary a full clean will be done. Bedding is included in the boarding fee.
For boarding animals we use aspen shavings, Aubiose, or Kaytee Clean and Cozy, depending on the animal's needs and the owner's preferences. You may also supply your own bedding if desired.
Cages and equipment are cleaned and disinfected between animals.
Hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats: £2.00 per night per cage. This includes fresh food if your pet usually eats it. You will need to provide your pet's dry food.
Guinea pigs, degus and chinchillas: £4.00 per night for a pair and 50p extra for each additional animal. This includes fresh food, timothy hay and bedding. You will need to provide your pet's dry food or pellets.
Hire of a cage: 50p extra per night.
Discounts are available for long stays (more than 4 weeks). There is no minimum or maximum stay. There is a discount for animals that have stayed with us previously.
You can pay in advance by Paypal, or in cash when you drop off your pet. You can cancel up to the day before your booking begins for a full refund, if you already paid.
